Well I've had a busy few weeks recently but I have done my best to take part in Jen's Interiors Addict 'Interiors Photo Month' on Instagram. I am always disappointed with my photos though - I don't have an iPhone and my camera just doesn't take as nice photos, especially in my very dark house!
But here a few peeks at my week for you...
Here is my little vintage loveseat (above). The mustard yellow upholstery wasin a good condition but has been gradually looking a bit beat-up thanks to regular use and two small dogs! This is part of a three piece set I have - the loveseat, a Gentleman's wingchair (high back) and a ladies chair with a low back. The plan is to upholster them but I have never got there yet!
Above is a closeup which is a more accurate picture of the colours. I love mustard yellow but these sofas have a touch too much brown for me to really love them as they are! The throw is a black and white blanket I picked up in Morocco. They are beautiful soft wool which they use for everything from throws to rugs to table cloths.
Remember the chandelier I found all that time ago? Well I have finished spraypainting it and ended up choosing a metallic gunmetal shade. It really highlights the detail of the piece. Just waiting for the electrician to hang it for me now!
A peek at another part of my kitchen. I have been gradually adding little vignettes all around the top of my cabinets, using art and a few accessories. It looks much more homely and pretty than when it was empty!
This is my latest find; a little timber side table. It has a white top with a pressed metal edge. I think I'm going to paint the timber legs a gloss white. Oh, and the tray is sitting on the bottom ledge; not part of the table!
I haven't been sharing many photos of my house recently because I can never seem to find a space that is finished. Hopefully this will share a little more of my place until I can finally get a room completed!
